copy the files you want to it, then copy things back when done.
The simplest option is probably to mount a tmpfs filesystem and
# mkdir /ramdisk
# mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /ramdisk
mount_tmpfs: tmpfs on /ramdisk: Operation not supported by device
# cp -R /somedir /ramdisk
the tmpfs will grow and shrink as necessary, so watch out if you
put too much data on there and use up all your ram...
this seems like the solution for me.
I'll try out the other things you suggested asap.
